Ways to Settle Disputes
ALICE, JERRY & EDDIE LEARN THRU EVERYDAY INCIDENTS AT PLAY & AT SCHOOL HOW DISPUTES CAN BE SETTLED BY COMPROMISE, BY OBEYING RULES, BY FINDING FACTS, OR BY FINDING OPINIONS, ACCORDING TO WHAT IS INVOLVED.
Ken Smith sez: This film teaches pre-teens different ways to settle disputes. Some of the ways outlined include "compromise" and "obey the rules" (typical fifties' conformism-in-disguise). Narrated for the most part, which makes it even more dull. "Eddie" later played President Mickey in Are Manners Important?

Subject: "What's a Bandersnatch?"
We then go to a classroom (check out those desks with the swivel chairs) where we settle a dispute about two similar looking notebooks, finding out what a 'bandersnatch' is (one kid screams, 'A WHAT?' - My thoughts exactly) and the kids have an election for a playground representative. Check out the results. How the heck could there be 27 kids in that classroom?? HIGHLY reccomended!
